Nicholas 'MajinTenshinhan' Taylor

Tournament Coverage Specialist

Nicholas "MajinTenshinhan" Taylor has been writing about games for a long time, and been playing them for a lot longer, and has been the Tournament Coverage Specialist for EventHubs since 2013.

Originally getting into fighting games lightly with Guilty Gear XX Slash in 2006, and then more seriously with Street Fighter 4 in 2009, he's been covering video games in general for online publications since 2009, and been working with fighting games specifically for EventHubs for over 6 years at this point.

Graduating with a bachelor's degree in translation focused on Japanese from Dalarna's Högskola, he uses his knowledge of the Japanese language for exclusive interviews and translations of key information with his finger on the pulse of news outlets that only publish in Japan.

Having work history which includes stints at Expressen, one of Sweden's biggest newspapers, as well as being raised by two parents who both worked in the same field gives him an intricate understanding of what journalism is about and how to approach stories in an appropriate manner.

Whether it's long shifts gathering all available data from events around the world and publishing them in a straightforward and easy to digest manner or writing larger pieces focusing on the intricacies of fighting game mentality and how to improve as a player, Nicholas makes sure to make full use of his experience to enhance his work.
